Countdown to PJP sainthood begins
The countdown to sainthood for Pope John Paul II probably began as soon as the faithful at his funeral Mass began enthusiastically calling for the new pope to bestow the honor on the beloved pontiff.
It seems the Vatican has initiated a more formal countdown of sorts. It has launched a new Facebook page focusing on the upcoming beatification of Pope John Paul II (pictured in AP Photo):
Also clips of Pope John Paul II may be seen on the Vatican’s YouTube channel for beatification: www.youtube.com/johnpaul2
The beatification ceremony is slated for May 1 and is expected to draw many, many of the faithful to Rome.
